Gould Hall, built in 1971, is named after Carl F. Gould (1873 – 1939), founder and first Chair of the Department of Architecture. Architect Gene Zema and Professor Daniel Streissguth were the lead designers of Gould Hall, in association with Dale Benedict and professors Grant Hildebrand and Claus Seligmann. Einar Svensson and Professor Robert Albrecht were the structural engineers. The building is reinforced cast-in-place concrete. A large central skylit atrium serves as a gathering place for the College. Gould Hall houses shared college facilities including the Built Environments Library, Digital Commons, Fabrication Lab, Visual Resources Collection, classrooms, and the Dean’s Office, as well as spaces for the Departments of Landscape Architecture, Urban Design & Planning, and the Runstad Center for Real Estate Studies.
